From the moment we entered the door, the host had a bad attitude. He was annoyed that we made reservations and showed up 30 minutes early to enjoy a cocktail in the bar. He then forgot about us and sat others before us. Our reservation was at 7 pm - we did not see our table until 745 pm. We came and politely asked him if our table was ready and were met with abhorrent distaste.
The main course was 1/2 price off, which was a pleasant surprise. Of the 4 of us - my sister got the filet and that was truly delicious. However the rest of our meals were subpar.
I wouldn’t return here.

Aurum was top notch from beginning to end. The brussel sprouts are the best I’ve ever tasted. The steak perfectly melted in your mouth. And the wine list was wonderful. Just a fantastic experience. I’ll definitely be back!

Good food overall though the crabcakes and flourless chocolate cake (it was a brownie) were a little disappointing. Also don't like when you are served your salad and appetizers at the same time. Main courses were great and servers all very friendly and professional.

This was our first time at the restaurant, our first visit to Steamboat. We took advantage of the half-price entrees, which made the dinner affordable. Nice selection of main dishes, well prepared. Cocktail also good. We were at the restaurant on a Thursday night, and it wasn't crowded, which = a good place to dine and talk. Would definitely recommend and return again!

We went for Happy Hour. The 50% off appetizers were amazing and plenty for dinner. We had the pork ribs, duck wings, and Brussels sprouts—all delicious! The kids Mac ‘n’ cheese was enough for two to three meals. Plus a beautiful, peaceful view of tha Yampa River. Excellent service. And the fire pit outside was perfect for an after-dinner glass of wine!

Food was good. We have had better in past visits. Service was good. Salmon was bland. Pork chops were delicious. Filet was good. Menu stated what came with the filet but that was not what was on plate. Overall a little pricey, so maybe save this visit for a special night. We will still go back.

We ate here twice this week. The first time, the spinach salad was gritty. Management was very responsive and removed the item from our bill. The cauliflower appetizer is worth the visit alone. The salmon and ossobuco were awesome. The second time the appetizers took more than forty-five minutes and our first drink service took fifteen. The meat balls from the light plates were very little meat and way overcooked. They were definitely understaffed in the kitchen and behind the bar. The happy hour pricing is too aggressive. The hamburger shouldn't be on the appetizer list. It ends up being split and shared so it can't be profitable. We love this restaurant and want it to succeed. Management obviously cared.

We were visiting Steamboat and decided to have a nice evening out. Aurum was amazing. The food was excellent and the wine list was very nice. The patio was beautiful and right on the river. We saw a gorgeous sunset. Our server, Alli, was very efficient, but less than personable. While she got our orders correct and (eventually) answered our menu questions, she was moving so fast that we had to call her back to actually get our answers and there was no small talk. We enjoy visiting new restaurants and normally find our servers can provide great local insight. That didn't happen last Sunday night.

This was our first time at this restaurant. Got off to a bad start when they didn’t have our reservation. They were able to seat us but our table was right next to the hostess station where there were a number of noisy people coming and going. We almost left but I’m glad we didn’t. The crowd settled down and our meal was fantastic. Highly recommend the restaurant.

Once you get past the noisy bar scene, it really is a quiet atmosphere with a nice view of the Yampa River if you have a window table. Very nice young man waiting on us. Good service. The parmesan fries were great and the peach bread pudding with ice cream was awesome. The lamb Osso Bucco was mediocre and very small. Fortunately it was half price during the shoulder season. Even then, I wasn't impressed. The small plate tuna was also mediocre. Pretty bland. Nice wine selection.

The food was great. We ordered the pork chop and filet. Both were cooked to our perfection the 1st time. The service was good so no complaints there albeit the host was quite stuffy. Although the food was delicious it was very expensive. Entrees were $40 to $50 each, not including appetizer, salad or drinks. This is a special occasion place for me not a general dining place.
